A BED INTO A BENCH - before and after

Every time I walk by this pretty and curvy bench it makes me smile.

BEFORE                          AFTER

This project was made with 2 headboards and 1 foot board.
 You can see the back and sides are made from a matching
 foot and head board but the front underside also has parts of
a French provincial headboard. All three frames used to build
 this bench are made of solid maple, which is a wonderful
 hard wood and offers great stability in furniture making.


The seat is vintage pine boards salvaged from some local
 farm shelving. Pine is a soft wood. Softwoods come from
 coniferous trees such as cedar, fir, and pine.

The last bench I built I fell in love with too and it went into our mudroom. We had never had a place to sit down in there until now, but now I'm constantly sitting in there.
